    I'm jotting down notes so I can do some mods when I pull my carpet when it warms up more. I want to install a CB in the center console and have the antenna in the L/R of the bed in a Total Chaos bed stiffener.
    Does anybody have an idea of the length I'll need without being overly long? Can I buy a length of cable, some ends and make a custom length cable?

    Yeah, you can get a connector that has a solder pin and crimp ring. I have the tool to make the crimp and can do it for you if you’re near Naugy.
